Coast Advantage. “Denise has an incredible work ethic and a very successful track record with our company. In

each of the four Sea Coast offices she managed before becoming VP, she increased sales volume, agent

recruiting, agent retention and agent production. This new CRB designation is another step forward in her

successful career.”
